Deconstructed with Mehdi Hasan

Journalist Mehdi Hasan is known around the world for his televised takedowns of presidents and prime ministers. In this new podcast from The Intercept, Mehdi unpacks a game-changing news event of the week while challenging the conventional wisdom. As a Brit, a Muslim and an immigrant based in Donald Trump's Washington D.C., Mehdi gives a refreshingly provocative perspective on the ups and downs of American—and global—politics.

Podfilter ist im Archiv-Mode: Podfilter wurde 2013 gestartet um Podcasts besser zu entdecken. Zu dieser Zeit gab es nur wenige gute Podcastverzeichnisse und Empfehlungen waren er manuell.
Mittlerweile sieht das ganze schon anders aus, und das Thema bedarf mehr als nur ein mittelmäßig gepflegtes Projekt. Empfehlung z.B.:https://fyyd.de/
Von 25.05.2018 an wird Podfilter deshalb im Read-Only-Modus betrieben: Ein Nutzerlogin und Neu-Anlegen von Podcasts ist nicht mehr möglich, alle existierenden Links, Feeds etc. bleiben aber noch für mindestens 1 Jahr erhalten.
